Santa Monica, CA – July 1, 2019 – Arrive (formerly Coozie Outdoors), the outdoor experience company that allows anyone to rent premium outdoor gear sustainably with delivery anywhere in the contiguous U.S, is now the exclusive camping gear rental provider for ReserveAmerica.com, the leading destination for discovering, exploring, and booking campsites, cabins, yurts, and other rental options.
Arrive works directly with premium outdoor gear brands and offers gear for rent on the platform, providing an alternative to buying, maintaining, and storing expensive gear. Arrive’s mission is to transform the $184B outdoor gear and services industry into an experience-based market. According to a study, 74% of Americans prioritize experiences over products, with that number only increasing for millennials and generation Z. There is a disconnect between the experience-spending consumer and the retail-driven outdoor industry – the collaboration between Arrive and ReserveAmerica.com is a step to close this gap.
Arrive was founded to help experience-focused consumers get outdoors without the hassle of buying, cleaning and storing gear. Arrive offers premium camping and backpacking gear as well as 1:1 support to make outdoor experiences as personalized and seamless as possible. Arrive provides these brands with an opportunity to compete in the experience-driven economy and promote a sustainable, cost-effective option for consumers to easily use products starting at 15% the retail price.
ReserveAmerica.com, operated by Aspira, proudly works with state and provincial governments as well as private managers of campgrounds and parks to conveniently connect people with natural, recreational, and historically relevant experiences. ReserveAmerica.com is the go-to community for outdoor recreation activities in North America.
This alliance provides access to campgrounds and premium gear to match the experience. When someone books a campground on ReserveAmerica.com, there will be opportunities to rent gear for that experience via Arrive. Along with offering gear to rent, the Arrive team can support campers and provide recommendations on gear, share ideas for meals at camp, and more. Arrive’s platform features over 100 products from over 40 brands.
“As outdoor enthusiasts ourselves, we started Arrive to give consumers the best possible gear without having to worry about astronomical costs and inconvenient storage,” said co-founder Rachelle Snyder. We’re proud to foster a more sustainable outdoor industry by providing access to gear in a way that is less wasteful, more convenient, and comes with the same high standards of ownership. This exciting collaboration with ReserveAmerica.com was a natural next step to expand the experience-driven industry.
“We are excited to offer direct access to renting camping gear from top brands through Arrive” said Mark Trivette, CEO of Aspira. “Once a consumer makes a reservation for their next outdoor adventure on ReserveAmerica.com, many times their next step is to secure the needed gear. Arrive makes that process easier and more affordable.”
